Check out our 7 steps to creating an online course and get started today:

1. Figure out your goals for the course.

What are you hoping to achieve with the course? Do you want to generate leads? Make sales? Build your email list? Once you know your goals, you can start to assess whether or not your course is helping you meet them.

2. Identify your target audience.

Who is the course for? What are their needs? What are their pain points? Understanding your target audience will help you figure out whether or not your course is meeting their needs.

3. Outline the course.

What topics will you cover in the course? What format will the course take? Answering these questions will help you determine whether or not your course is structured in a way that makes sense for your target audience.

4. Create a sales page for the course.

Once you have an outline of the course, you can start to write the sales copy. This is where you’ll really get to know your target audience and what they’re looking for.

5. Promote the course.

Now that you have a sales page for the course, it’s time to start promoting it. This is where you’ll need to get creative and come up with a marketing strategy that works for your business.

6. Launch the course.

Once you’ve promoted the course and have a few people signed up, it’s time to launch it. This is where you’ll start to get feedback from students and see how they’re responding to the course.

7. Evaluate the results.

After you’ve launched the course, it’s important to take some time to evaluate the results. This will help you determine whether or not the course is successful and whether or not it’s worth your time and money.
